Hey Now Vermoontains,

I dig Ramble on Rose but Not sure it works with Wynona
and not sure Weir even does it justice?

Here is Jack Straw:

Which the vocals are good especially with Wynona swapping verses
and backing-up Weir.
BUT >>>> to me there is very little flow from the musicians.
Maybe it is the mix,, very muddy
anyway I am still looking for Jack Straw> Cryptical Envelopment
so I might just as well forgot about it .

Say Hey
Ramble reminds that Garcia's voice is unique and others don't seem to get the song is supposed to be funny and that you laugh while you sing it.
Jack Straw had the Noise sounding Big and Bobs doing a rare fun windmill.
I liked the music on Jack Straw and one of the comments mentioned it was not as slow as Deadco

I am not sure how Dead & Company have settled into that tempo.
Me thinks it would have to be a Billy thing.
Kreutzmann is the most accomplished player of that bunch.

Ramble On Rose always wondered if that wasn't a nod to Nat King Cole.

What a voice and was backed by an impressive jazz unit.

The recording you put up of Bob Weir
with just his guitar isolated
from the rest of the band was a trip
and what he does is unique.
